This was such pure joy to plan and host. I got to pull out so many of my baubles and treasures to make the theme come alive. From the vintage parasol pocket on the front door, to the dress form greeting guests (mirroring the front of the invitation), to using vintage jewelry boxes to serve food (make sure you line the drawers with wax paper first), and decorating the simple white cake with vintage broaches and millinery leaves . . . . aaahhhhhhhhhhhh, what a blast this was. (And a special thanks to the bride herself for shooting these wonderful pictures! Visit her blog and website for more gorgeousness.)
We did a fun project that ties in with one of the vignettes to be featured at the wedding. At the entrance to the winery there will be my vintage blue bike, with the cans on string trailing behind, sort of like the "getaway" car once they're married (and a reminder of shower day!). Each gal at the shower painted a can. After the wedding, the cans hanging from their strings can be hung on a door as a keepsake.
